Summary
A poetic text and wonderfully intimate photographs follow a newborn sandhill crane as it takes its first steps into the world.Will my legs hold me? What if I fall?Peek in as a sandhill crane hatchling makes its first wobbly stand and takes its first steps alongside its brother. With their parents close by, they flap their wings and dance before enjoying a buggy treat. Someday they will fly with the majestic cranes overhead, but for now, Mama's soft feathers beckon. With a lyrical narrative and lovely photo illustrations, this latest venture from an acclaimed creative team makes a perfect new baby gift - and will appeal to bird lovers, too.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When a sandhill crane egg hatches, the little chick finds itself atop a mound of reeds and twigs surrounded by water. It rises to standing position and soon starts to walk. When it finds its slightly older brother, they flap their wings, try to dance, and consider jumping into the water, but a parent warns that a snapping turtle is nearby. The chicks spot cranes in flight overhead and wonder how those birds learned to fly. Finally tuckered out, the little chick walks to its seated mama's side, leans in, and flops forward against her folded wing. Time for a rest. In their fifth picture-book collaboration, poet Frost and photographer Lieder offer young listeners a childlike narration from the hatchling's point of view, illustrated with captivating glimpses of its first experiences. Frost's short, rhyming verses help listeners imagine what the chick might hear, see, feel, and think. Often riveting and sometimes touching, Lieder's beautifully lit photographs work well with the expressive text. A pleasing picture book that reads aloud nicely.--Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2019 Booklist"
